S!

This is the default color scheme that was used for Swiss Nieuport 17 fighters.
Although the skin is historically correct, I post this here because I fully agree with Panthercules' opinion:

Very nice looking skin. HOWEVER, I think it would be more appropriate to post this in the "for fun" section of the polls. Even though the skin may itself be "historical" in a sense, I don't think it is actually "historical" to place it in the historical section of the polls (which I believe should be reserved for historically correct skins for planes that actually took place in the fighting which is being simulated by the game). Like the historically accurate post-war skins, I think these belong in the "for fun" section because their inclusion in the game as part of "The First Great Air War" would not be historically accurate.

So, that's the skin pack: http://dl.dropbox.co...efaultswiss.zip">http://dl.dropbox.co...2729686/rof/ski … tswiss.zip

Great looking skin! Now, if we just had some mountain maps to go with it :lol:

In order to conform to the naming convention in the clarified guidelines (posted here: http://riseofflight....hp?f=112&t=8450">viewtopic.php?f=112&t=8450 ), please make this skin name string start with "z " in all 5 localization sections.

Good luck - looks great!

@KingPhantom:

That would be nice, please post your pictures :D
I might go to the "Fliegermuseum Dübendorf" next week which contains each plane that was
used in the Swiss Air Force since WW1. :)
